Can you advise on food allergies?

When your child is diagnosed with food allergies a visit to your dietician will hgelp you to plan your child's allergen-free diet. Not all dieticians are qualified in this field. A registered dietitian is a food and nutrition professional who has met certain academic and professional requirements.We will discuss your child's normal eating habits along with symptoms that have occurred with the ingestion of suspected or positive test foods. The nutritional needs of your child will be compared with the current diet to determine if more nutritionally dense foods or if supplements are necessary. A meal plan will be defined, food/symptom diaries provided, lists of foods to avoid and suggestions for meals and foods to use provided. Follow-up visits will be scheduled to discuss progress and concerns.

Holidays are for relaxing and having a good time. It is only natural that you will be eating out more often with friends and family. Don't stress about it.
